Murch Bowling Club fundraiser for Crossroads Care

Jo receives the cheque from Cynthia

Each year members of Murch Bowling Club in Dinas Powys raise funds for local charities.

This year, Club member Merle Davies nominated Crossroads Care in the Vale as one of two charities to benefit from the fundraising, the other being the National Deaf Children’s Society. A successful fundraising event organised by the Bowling Club members raised the grand total of £700, which was divided between the two charities.

Jo Hendry of Crossroads Care in the Vale attended a presentation at the Club on 11th October, and was presented with the £350 cheque by Cynthia Tranter.

Jo thanked the group for their efforts and generosity, and explained how the funds would benefit local carers and their relatives with dementia.
